In 2013 my husband and I said goodbye to our busy life style in the Uk. We packed our van and drove across europe to our old dilapidated farmhouse in Piemonte to start a new life renovating and creating a special garden with the intention of one day opening as a small bed and breakfast for everyone to enjoy our little bit of paradise.
This blog is all about our adventures. I have written my thoughts as short stories hopefully to give the readers entertainment and an insight of our experiences renovating an old farmhouse in Italy. It may not always be grammatically correct but it is how it flows from my head.
The actual beginning of the trip starts on the first archive just click onto April 2015,the story slowly unfolds with each following month. Each story is separate and to read more recent experiences (and comment on them in the blog) please click on each story listed under the “MY STORIES” menu above.
For those interested in the making of the garden the story title always includes something associated with horticulture.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or are considering a simiiar life change I am always happy to help and advise if I can.
We are hoping that our bed and breakfast will be open for bookings as from summer 2018.

I hope you find pleasure in sharing the experiences of this crazy couple. Thankyou for reading.
